The landing site selected for Apollo 14 was in the Fra Mauro formation near Cone Crater, with the primary objective of sampling material excavated by the Imbrium impact. The hilly terrain covering much of the left portion of the photograph is the Fra Mauro formation, material interpreted to be ejecta from the Imbrium Basin. The low-illumination angle emphasizes the undulating surface texture of the Fra Mauro formation. The sharp-rimmed crater on the northern rim of Fra Mauro Crater is Fra Mauro...

On April 12, 1961 Yuri Gagarin became the first human in space. News of his successful launch stunned the world and spurred the American space program to catch up. The name of his spacecraft was Vostok 1. Vostok 1 had two sections. One section was for Yuri. The second section was for supplies needed for Gagarin to live such as oxygen and water. Vostok 1 circled Earth at a speed of 27,400 kilometers per hour. The flight lasted 108 minutes. Vostok's reentry was controlled by a computer. Gagarin...

This PSSC film utilizes a fascinating set consisting of a rotating table and furniture occupying surprisingly unpredictable spots within the viewing area. The fine cinematography by Abraham Morochnik, and funny narration by University of Toronto professors Donald Ivey and Patterson Hume is a wonderful example of the fun a creative team of filmmakers can have with a subject that other, less imaginative types might find pedestrian.

The 1955 broadcast of Gian Carlo Menotti's opera written expressly for television (although Menotti conceived of it as a stage production: "On television you're lucky if they ever repeat anything. Writing an opera is a big effort and to give it away for one performance is stupid.") Staged by the composer; orchestra conducted by Thomas Schippers. Stars Bill McIver as Amahl, and Rosemary Kuhlmann as Mother. It's accompanied by a clip of the Columbus Boychoir singing a program of popular...
